But you can just as easily use your mind to put an end to clutter. If you can envision order, you can create it. It might help to find a picture of a home that’s beautiful to you and put it somewhere where you can see it every day.
If previous attempts at uncluttering failed because of lack of motivation, or if the thought of getting organized makes you feel anxious or overwhelmed, try using some visualization techniques.
Take a good look around you. Now close your eyes and visualize what the room might look like without clutter. Give yourself some time. Can you can see it in your mind’s eye?
Upon awakening each day or whenever you have a few moments to yourself, visualize your beautiful home. Visualization can be a powerful motivational tool. Someday, in the not-too-distant future, you will be able to look at your beautiful home and say, “It’s just as I pictured it and I Love it!”
Affirmations are another way to help you reach your goal of an uncluttered and wonderful home. An affirmation is a positive statement with personal meaning that you repeat often. Here’s an example of an affirmation you might use as you proceed toward your goal of uncluttering your home: “I am doing this out of love and respect for myself and my family.”
